Bill T. Ward, chairman and CEO of Ward Transport and Logistics, stated: "On behalf of the Ward family and our employees, I would like to thank Chuck for his many contributions to our company over the years.

Due to our expansion in customer solutions, our consultative perspective in approaching our customers, and our cultural values to execute and perform what we are asked to do, the company is well positioned going forward.”
